South Florida: Brunch & Beauty at The Diplomat Beach Resort

“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” – Robert Louis Stevenson Sometimes you just need a staycation.When I arrived at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida it was an overcast, yet lovely, winter day. Four years living in South Florida and I still loved this weather. I had been invited to have brunch and tour the facility as part of the Ft…

Free Webinar: Write Your Soul Story

"There's a story inside of you that needs to be shared with the world." ~ Suki For so many years I left stories half-written. Pages gathering dust, ideas withering away in the wind. I know what it feels like to want to birth a story, to hold it within you just waiting for the right time and place to bring it to life. It wasn't until I actually gave birth to my first child, Mishka,…

There was always an excuse, there was always a way to sabotage myself. In my digital closet I have dozens…

Why I Am Thankful for the Fear

I've always been fearful. As far back as I remember I was worried about this and worried about that. I could never quite breathe easy, I could never quite let my shoulders down. Looking back even as a child I felt I was on guard, ready at any moment to go into battle. The word we use for it today is "anxiety," but back in those days I didn't even know what the word meant.…

Why I’ve Been a Hermit for Months

You may have noticed less emails, less blog posts, less activity on Sookton's Space. My friends haven't seen me in months. I've been popping up hosting workshops and events, and then quickly retreating to my home. The truth is, I have been spending a lot of time alone, reflecting, and writing. In the past I would have called myself "selfish" for this kind of behavior. I would have said, "Suki, people want to see you. You…

I Played Hooky from Work & It Revitalized My Soul

In the daytime, I worked on freelance projects, in the night time, I taught yoga or writing workshops. By Friday, I came home after working, teaching, and healing people for over 70 hours.

What It Feels Like to Be a Writer

It's not easy being a writer. I think people often romanticize the writing process. Like authors wake up every morning, brush the curtains aside, sit musing with a cup of coffee as the birds sing outside, and then write a book. Like it's that simple to write a book. Like every morning will be as beautiful as the next, filled with inspiration and beauty. The truth is, writers, just like professionals in any trade, have…
